What Are Likelihood of Confusion Factors?

Likelihood of confusion factors are the legal standards used to determine whether trademark infringement has occurred. The factors are also used as one of several tests conducted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to determine whether a trademark application is approved.

The likelihood of confusion test is used to decide if a trademark is likely to be confused with another trademark. 

The Role of a Trademark Attorney

The attorney that is examining the trademark needs to do a search of the USPTO records to find out whether the applicant's mark is similar to any other registered mark that may cause confusion or mistake if it is used on or in connection with the same type of goods or services as the other mark in the application.

The attorney also needs to search any pending applications to see if there are conflicting marks that have earlier filing dates. Any

What Are Generic Trademarks?

Generic trademarks are common terms used to name products or services, for example, a brand of shoes called "shoes". Generic trademarks describe a product, so no one can register them as trademarks. These marks don't qualify for any protection.

Why Generic Terms Can't Be Trademarks

Generic terms such as "computer" cannot be registered as trademarks because anyone has the right to use generic words to describe the products they are selling. Giving trademark rights to generic terms would make the English language poorer and would restrict competition. This rule applies to both the principal and the supplemental registers.

Adding a dot-com(or dot-org, dot-net, etc.) suffix to a generic term isn'
